after a car accident that killed cowboys linebacker jerry brown, a member of the team's practice squad. police are saying that this accident happened about 2:20 this morning in the dallas suburb of irving, texas. officers at the scene were being told -- officers at the scene believed that alcohol was a contributing factor in that crash. he was asked to perform some field sobriety tests. based on the result of those tests along with the officers' observations and some conversations, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated. this is developing news out of texas. dallas cowboys defensive lineman josh brint facing an intoxication manslaughter charge. linebacker jerry brown, a member of that team's practice squad, is dead. at this point no comment from the cowboys team as of yet. more on the story as we continue to gather more information right here on msnbc. you ever notice that some people just have a knack for giving the perfect gift? they put real thought into it. and find just... the right...thing. how do they do that? more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. p
race and discrimination. the most famous in brown v. board which the court held it was unconstitutional. so why wait until 1967 to hear the case about interracial marriage. here are all of the states that had laws on the books. banning interracial marriage. by 1967 only 16 states still had the laws on the books. in the decades between 1947 and 1967 the years the supreme court was staying mom on the issue, most states decided on their own. the court was following on their heels, following the heels of public opinion. this is a big debate in the legal world. the supreme court influenced by american public opinion? these are nine people who could completely ignore the will of the people. they are appointed for life. they can totally ignore us if they choose. many legal experts say that's not how it works. they are swayed by what the people think about issues. they anoubsed they would hear two cases involving same-sex marriage. that's huge. they would hear the prop 8 case out of california. that's the california ballot proposition which amended the california constitution to define marriage
brown could swoop in. you say that's not a possibility. >> no. i think it's a possibility because this is politics and that would be special election. but what i'm saying is that we have to look at -- we have to look at m and a. the president, again, won by almost 25 points. brown lost by eight points to elizabeth warren a servir taurl unknown in the state having already been there for two years. it's not so much kerry's seat is in danger. if john kerry is nominated to be secretary of state or secretary of anything do i think democrats will hold on to that seat? there's a 90% chance the democrats will hold on to that seat. the governor of massachusetts will make that determination. this has nothing to do with john kerry and his seat. >> let's go back to hilary. take a listen to this. they recently played at this in honor of hilary. >> she's taken a life experience in politics, as a mother, as a senator and put that all together in the pinnacle up to now of her public service. >> you've been one of the best secretaries of state in american history. finally hilary a lot has been sai
? >> huge here. it's huge. we perceive the threat coming from the black and brown community. and there was, you know, series of racial indents throughout city. murders of various people. eleanor bumpers, various cases and made us fearful and so when this happened, let's not go in to the fact of many other interracial rapes and murders that got no coverage but this is the crime of the century ed koch said and a test of the justice system. it may now be in the totality of how much it represents in a microcosm all of american history and the strange, long trip with race and the way it's an excuse for absolutely everything. but it certainly was a test of the justice system and it failed. >> and to that point, i mean, what's the bigger takeaway you want people to take from the film that you took from this film? >> jim dwyer and says i wish had been more skeptical. he was the most skeptical at the time and puts it in big and very tiny and human terms. he says we all make mistakes and whether you own them or not and what we have found now is 13 years of justice denied for % these kids, this unbel
of you did. jerry brown, might not only we have a clinton match i think we have a clinton-jerry brown rematch in the primaries in 2016. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? >>> these outside groups, are they having any success pressuring? these ceos have been here every other day. do we feel like they're having any impact? >> no, i don't think they are. the cross pressures are coming because republicans are feeling primary heat, democrats feel they have the upper hand. the super pacs that spent so much money in the election that just concluded, this can be their social welfare aspect. they're starting to spend money on -- >> but not really. i don't think anybody kn
's pick it up with four minutes left in the game. cowboys up by four. bryce brown loses the ball. and morris claiborne scoops it up, and he's off to the proverbial races. 50 yards the other way for the touchdown. that would appear to seal the deal for the cowboys, but the eagles not done. check this out. i love these. less than a minute remaining. cowboys punting to johnson. fields the punt. yep, he's coming all the way back from the 2 yard line. a little weave, duck and move and he is gone as well. all the way down the sideline. outrunning everybody including the popcorn guy. untouched for 98-yard touchdown. gives the eagles a chance with 31 seconds left after missing the two-point conversion, down five. but they do not get the on-side kick, and the cowboys hang on to win, 38-33. they are still alive in the playoff hunt at 6-6. the eagles, well, they haven't won since september the 30th. >>> a couple number one picks squaring off, andrew luck led his colts into detroit to face matt stafford's lions. less than three minutes left in the game. luck buys a little time. this guy is l
if he is named. we hear scott brown may be looking for work. >>> well, turning now to more serious news overseas, with the growing concern, the syrian government came resort to using chemical weapon, turkey is building up its defenses along its southern border. nato has agreed to deploy patriot missile systems to as many as 10 potential sites making a point of stressing the defensive nature of the weapons shipment. nato and the u.s. have warned assad that any use of chemical weapons will be met with an immediate international response. >>> egyptian president morsi has returned to the presidential palace this morning after being forced out last night by angry mobs. riot police fired tear gas at crowds topping 100,000 people who overran barricades at the palace and cairo. demonstrators are an or morsmor constitution saying it contains limits on individual liberty and puts too much power in the hands of the president. his administration says the constitution establishes democracy. protesters also took to tahrir square and nearly a dozen newspapers stopped publication to protest the new con
are calling him. tom price, paul brown, a lot of congressmen, former secretary of state. >> paul brown. >> paul brown, he's thinking about it. he told me he's not ruling it out, chuck. >> that will be entertaining. >> okay. thank you. >> paul brown. >> dr. paul brown. thank you so much, bob. thank you, chuck. greatly appreciate it. >>> coming up next, we're going to be revealing the cover of "time" magazine with rick stengel when we return.

browne dianis. thank you so much. let me ask judith to start with some homework that we couldn't do but we're counting on to you do. people come up to me and said, i was so angry about some of the suppression talk and attempts in those 30-some states. african-americans would say i got out there and i voted. what evidence do you have that it really worked in favor, or rather put it this way, against the republicans for trying to do that? >> well, number one, we know that they tried to do it so that they could have partisan advantage, but we do know it backfired because, number one, organizations like mine were able to stop them dead in their tracks by bringing litigation. but, two, we know that voters were standing in line. in fact, i stood in line in maryland for seven hours, and i will tell you, chris, that the discussion in that line and in an all-black precinct -- seven hours -- people said this is about voter suppression. they don't want us to vote. this is an old playbook. people are used to it. they see it coming and they say, no, we're not going to allow them to silence us an
be the brown v. board of education for gay and lesbian couples. or the case before it that embraced segregation. it's very hard to predict. it leaves many of us very, very nervous. it's not just the 120,000 couples in this country who are gay or lesbian and married but it affects all of us. we currently have a country that disenfranchises people who want to marry for love and we don't let them. 31 states prohibit those type of marriages. >> a lot of people come back to the 1960s in loving versus west virginia and whether it will mirror that merely 50 years later. the court, though, has ten marriage equality cases to choose from. as i pointed out, they only chose two. if i know this correctly, they had eight different ones to consider choosing and two prop 8 ones. they have one doma and one prop 8. >> what's fascinating, this is a court that has avoided this issue. it's been pathological. everyone in lawrence v. texas, the opinion was distorted in my ways because of a clear effort not to say anything that would have baring on the same-sex marriage issue. suddenly, they take two issues with the b
after, brown versus board of education, schools still weren't segregated because the states dug in their heels and said we're not going to implement this, do it in a haphazard fashion to create chaos and ogs po it. >> i would like to see concrete legislation happening. we know that in terms of -- >> from where? >> in congress, for example, there is the house passed stem legislation supposed to give visas to highly educated immigrants in the country but takes away money from less educated immy grants. that's not going to pass the senate. everybody needs to understand that bipartisan legislation that had bipartisan support needs to go through and still a lot more work to be done. because just doing the stem stuff is not going to be enough to move the country forward. >> this issue is not going away and this is something -- business wants this badly. i mean it has a huge impact on companies and their bottom line. >> this is something that belongs squarely in the purview of the states and where a lot of the -- >> to jan brewer? >> no, abobut i'm showing it sh the difference between
trigger a special election in massachusetts with former senator and outgoing senator scott brown waiting in the wings to make get that position back. you know, looking even at that press conference, tamron, you know we've had this conversation before. john kerry's been nothing but a loyal soldier to the obama white house throughout this whole thing. >> absolutely. mark, thank you very much. we'll be right back with more "news nation."

and brown boys had been moving through the park that night beating up a homeless man and a male jogger but they never saw the female jogger. police picked up five. them, taen ateenagers all. held them for 30 hours and demanded they tell them about the crime they did not witness. the boys implicated each other because they were scared, stressed, and coerced by the police. the d.a.'s office later says the boy's accounts had discrepancies. dna couldn't place them at the bloody scene. the boys were said by police and media to have been in a wolf pack and to have been wilding reducing them to animals and violent beasts. they never had a chance. they were convicted and served their full sentences before another man came forward to confess, producing accurate details and dna that was at the scene. mayor koch called it the crime of the century, but now that it's not just about rape on hallowed new york city ground but about five lives shattered, the crime of the century takes on different meaning. it calls into mind the nine scotsboro boys convicted of raping a woman. it's why george zimmerman
. in fact, they put $5.5 million in -- from the financial industry into her opponent's campaign, scott brown. how is this going to work in the senate, do you feel w her underbanking committee? >> we're so excited. the emily's list community of 2 million have been with elizabeth since she was even thinking about that senate run. and to watch her now get on the banking committee, walk into the united states senate. she's a fighter for the middle class. she's proven herself, she set up the consumer protection bureau. she's going to bring what is exactly needed in the united states senate to bring this country forward and i couldn't be happier about what she's going to bring to the united states senate. >> now, ryan, the banking industry, one reaction from richard hunt, consumer banking association, president and ceo, he says i welcome her to be inside the tent rather than outside the tent, throwing bombs. what kind of sulbtle message is that? >> well, they think they're going to be able to co-op her. i think the best chance to stymie her is she's outnumbered. you have enough bank-friendly repub
, the securities and investments industry contributed $3 million to scott brown's xap and only $245,000 to warren's. as warren railed against the abuses of wall street bankers. >> the system is rigged. look around. oil companies guzzle down billions in profits. billionaires pay lower tax rates than their secretaries. and wall street ceos, the same ones who wrecked our economy and destroyed millions of jobs, still strut around congress no shame, demanding favors, and acting like we should thank them. >> melinda, this is a bit of poetic justice, right? elizabeth warren is going to be sitting in the senate banking committee, which oversees the consumer financial protection bureau the irony here is thick. i am fascinated to see what dynamic is in the senate with elizabeth warren there. >> sometimes karma comes quickly and she shows up wearing glasses and pearls. >> i mean she definitely will. the question is, you know, there are a lot of things still up in the air as far as dodd/frank and financial reform. how hard she's going to push. elizabeth warren has thus far been totally unapologetic about her
't going to go through this again. it's not going to be, you know, charlie brown with a football all over again. and so, you know i understand that there are lots of my former colleagues reporting on the white house who are convinced that the president won't get this through. this is a one-time negotiation. and the white house knows it's going to be too painful. and frankly, too disruptive to the markets. one thing the republicans keep talking about is certainly. and yet, they want the uncertainty of a default debate. it's not going to happen. >> richard and alex, if i can just add to, that we went through this in 2011 with regard to the debt ceiling. the financial markets reacted very badly. most voters and the financial markets blame the republicans. the republicans were the ones who were threatening the full faith and credit of the united states. they don't want to do this again. and if they do try to do it again, if i were the president, i would say forget about it. just raise the debt ceiling automatically. it's not in the constitution. there are no legislative requirements with rega
brown has one more bite at the apple. but i do think it would be better esthetics if the next time they are going to attack a member of the administration, they actually showed they weren't fixated on black appointees. one after the other, they seem more comfortable to attack black appointe appointees. that's a big concern for people across the country. >> what about the president though? he clearly is backing susan rice. but is this a fight worth having? i mean -- >> this is a man who has won office, who is not going to be on the ballot again. he said i'm going to back the people who i think can do the best job. if you have an issue with my general because he was talking to this socialite in florida, forget about it. that's not what the war is about. let the man do the job. if rice came on and did what the cia told her to do, that's pretty much what any senator would do too. so this is a nonissue. >> i hope no one takes their eye off the ball, which is going after the people that committed this. >> that's what worries me. our country has big issues. to keep fixating on the persona
what the initiative is with jerry brown and what the governor is doing. president obama is discussing more and more about the need to raise taxes. it's radical to talk about raising taxes on those who most profitted over the last 20 to 30 years. we are at an opportune moment to get into realities of the challenges of dealing with economic issues. >> then you get a defense budget come out of washington which has in it programs the pentagon is saying we don't want. >> making subs in connecticut. >> they want subs. but, there is a certain reality that -- look at the fence and what happened this week. it was going to be raised. didn't get raised. in that package were defense budgets the pentagon says they don't want funded. they have to be included in the defense budget. >> i agree. to go back to the tax thing, you have to be careful with two thing that is are overlooked. the american federal system of taxes is progressive, very progressive. >> on the books it is. we should make that distinction. >> it is very progressive and way more progressive than countries like the european countries
into straight families. not all are accepting. brian brown and his wife have seven children. the more children someone has the likelier they are to have a gay or lesbian child. to be a gay, male child would be a real nightmare and a struggle but that is often what happens and what changes a family. >> what i think is fascinating about this theory of it is from a very early point in the struggle for gay and lesbian rights as a kind of social movement, explicitly, because it's a long struggle. the political act of coming out was so central for that reason. but there's a level which, i think it's almost to the point where it happened so quickly, you can think it was inevitable. it was also engineered. there was a lot of work that went into this. >> a lot of work and thought. it didn't seem inevitable when they suggested gay people should be inturned or have tattoos on arms or buttocks to stop the spread of aids and hiv. there were dark moments. aids, even, because it outed so many people changed the discussion and changed the dialogue. it outed people as partying gay, chaps of the pride parade. i
commissioner paul brown couldn't even remember the last time a day went by where not one person was shot, stabbed, or slashed. >> what happened? i remember the real new york of the '80s. when in a single night you could score some weed, catch a time square porno and get stabbed in the neck by a coked up lou reid. and that was a pretty good first date. now time square has become a bubba gump wimp company. >>> good morning. it's tuesday. december 4th. welcome to "morning joe." with us onset, we have msnbc senior political analyst mark haleprin. oh, my god, please stop. just get it off. get it off -- >> pulitzer prize-winning historian jon meacham. "the art of power." >> so you know why i'm doing this. last night, mika goes to madison square garden thinking she's going to see one direction and teenage girls screaming and all that. >> yeah. >> instead, her car gets sidetracked, she winds up at the 92nd street "y," and there are a bunch of screaming girls at the "y." jon meacham's new number one selling book. >> i tried to hand your book out last night at the concert. they weren't interested.
versus virginia. employment discrimination, 13 years after brown versus board of education. the supreme court had a marriage case on its bokt in 1956. but kicked it. because it didn't want to touch it with a ten-foot pole so waited for more states to come around. it's also the year that guess who's coming to dinner comes out. there's a cultural legal convergence. we're at that moment for the gay community now. one of the historians in the gay marriage trial, nancy kauts, a historian of marriage, she said one of the emancipated slaves after -- the slaves flocked to get married. she testified that one of the emancipated slaves said the marriage covenant is a foundation of all of our rights. so i totally agree with rea that this is just the beginning but it is an important cornerstone to building full equality for lgbt citizens. >> this question of sort of how enslaved people thought about marriage, the extent to which they engaged in formal marriages and then the extent to which ones given the freedom it became one of the first things that free people did to represent their freedom is ins
for interracial marriage. like brown versus board of education. it's time to say you have the right to be in a committed relationship with the person you love and the government shouldn't tell you who that is. it's a simple, clear-cut case and i certainly hope the supreme court agrees. >> democratic congressman, jared polis of colorado, do appreciate your time. >> coming up. >> someone get corey booker a super hero cape. the latest adventure of the newark mayor. he's at it again. >>> and then we flash back to 1992, when separation beset the house of windsor, stay tuned, you're watching msnbc. eat good fats. avoid bad. don't go over 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good. the story keeps changing. so i'm not listening... to anyone but myself. i know better nutrition when i see it: great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like natural grains. you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself. for multi grain flakes that are an excellent source of
